Some might call it `drunk brickie' but I don't think that's what you are looking for. Curly wurly?
I wonder where the boundary line lies?

Well, it’s a lion, is it used in an advert for something?

Not an advert, a far more interesting reason.
I thought that as well Cathy but of course it's a painting not a photograph.

Mine's Libra so on balance I think I'm correct unless I've got my blindfold on.

Oooohhh...same as Cazza. ( how do you go with decision making? Because there are so many decisions to be made in life. Always balancing the scales...yet Libras have the wisdom that I lack, and I respect that. I think they are more ancient than us proud Lions.)
Whenever I have had a problem that I pass through Cazza, she comes at it from a completely different angle - never one I have thought of.

I think it is either Cecil or a Barbary Lion which has recently become extinct as a species.

I suspect Ken knew but was keeping stum. Ian has voiced it and he's right. The Barbary Lion, which is now extinct. (LINK)
Next one please.

It's a very beautiful kitchen knife with a Damascene pattern forged into it. Can you tell me the name for this pattern?

Sorry no, but Wendy is on the right track.
Peter. Wootz was a form of very ancient steel produced in India before we had cracked the secret of making it and was exported in small cakes, it could only be made in very small quantities and was very valuable. (LINK)
